Microsoft might be looking into Insider suggestions to release its Microsoft Edge browser on Android and iOS mobile devices. A Twitter poll was posted today by Technology Strategist at Microsoft and former WinBeta editor, Fahad Al-Riyami. It asks “Is this something you’d like to see?” with a simple ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ answer.

The tweet also linked towards an old discussion post written by Insider Travis McEndree that planned out how Microsft Edge’s embrace of other mobile platforms could benefit the company and consumers in the long run.
The discussion was started in August 2015 with the release of Windows 10 and it’s still going with the most recent post yesterday. Travis explained that Edge would just make lives easier if it was made across other mobile device platforms. It reads:
With Microsoft Edge being available on Android and iOS, The user base would triple. Not only that, but Microsoft would also make it easier for users to sync tabs, passwords and other information to be more available. Just Imagine, Your Browser knowing what tabs you had open on another device, and it remembering your Reading List. Or settings. The amount of amazingness would be too high!
The enthusiast also went into some extremely logical considerations that Microsoft already has many services and products across other mobile platforms, so why not Microsoft Edge? It’s a question that the company might be looking to answer now, nearly a year and a half later.
